look upon my hands
and wash them clean
my eyes and set them ablaze
and shoot it upon into the sky
into the heavenly realms,
lock it away where no demon of hell
can touch it.
Now, I am yours
I am mighty in You
Teach me to do Thy will
In Acts, we see the Holy Spirit descending upon the disciples in tongues of fire. In Isaiah, we see an angel branding the tongue of the prophet before sending him out.
We who know God, who belong to His family, have His words on our lips. By His power and will, we speak wisdom and prophesy. All insight and encouragement we may give goes forth directly from Him.
As the saying goes, “see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil.” We must guard our hearts and minds, so only good goes out of it.
This of it this way, God spoke and the world was created. John calls Jesus Christ the very Word of God. This same Jesus brings our dead souls back to life, works miracles, and leads the way through life temporal into life eternal.
Today, let us meditate on the power of words and speak what is good.
Bless you, my friends. God is good.
We put so much weight in things
Lucky socks and magic talismans
But it is not the things themselves
that make the difference,
but rather our belief in them,
and not only that
but also any power invested in them
by a Third Party.
Moses’ staff was just a staff
until touched by the hand of God.
Then it became a snake, a battle-winner
and a sea-splitter.
Anything can be amazing when
believed in and touched by the hand of the Divine.
So, believe in others, believe in yourself
and believe in God,
lift all things up to God,
so HE can work wonders in and through them.
We can’t look down on one another
We can’t just say, “rise” and consider that our part
We must either give each other a helping hand up
or lower ourselves down so we stand eye to eye.
True equality requires action,
not just words.
Sacrifice, humility, and encouragement
Shared power and access to resources:
These are the building blocks of a better tomorrow.
I have a habit of lingering, of hovering
of hesitating when I know the journey ahead will be rough.
But it’s better to try and fail, than to linger.
I need to take a chance.
Life cannot be lived in a dial tone.
I think we can learn a lot from Taylor Swift
Think what you like, but she is one of those people
Who has enough clout to take on the impossible things.
Owed money as an artist? She will fight for fair pay.
Groped by Radio DJ? She will call the man out
And get justice!
Many of us don’t have to power
Don’t have the voice we need
To take on the giants
If you do, use it for the rest of us.
Power and influence can be a game changer, if used correctly.
Go with God, my valorous peeps!
It is the fate of man to be willing
but not able, or able but not willing.
Thank you Jesus for being both.
